    AUDI AG is creating additional capacity for the next stage of the company’s growth. As of 2015, the Ingolstadt-based automobile manufacturer will produce cars in São José dos Pinhais, Brazil. The new Audi Q3 and the new A3 Sedan are to drive off the assembly line in the south of the world’s sixth-largest economy. For this purpose, the company will invest around € 150 Mio. Audi is thus consistently pursuing its course of international expansion. Already in late 2013, Audi will further expand its worldwide production network when the second Audi plant in China starts production in Foshan. The company plans to produce cars also in Mexico as of 2016. Together with the new production in Brazil, Audi intends to significantly increase its deliveries of the brand with the four rings to customers also on the South American continent.
